I expect you to die, Mr. Bond!

henry t hyde

Meet Henry T. Nicholas, local billionaire and James Bond villain. Henry was the head of Broadcom, a big microchip company. Henry stands six foot six, has a dungeon under his house, slips Ecstasy to unknowing dinner companions, does meth and coke, has a prostitution problem, has armed guards patrolling his home, and flies around in a private jet with the drugs and the prostitutes. At least, this is what the prosecutors and some angry associates say, and some of it is beyond denial, in particular the dungeon. He is also on the hook for securities fraud at his company.

Christ, what an asshole. But just look at the guy! Wow!

Details, lurid and otherwise, are in this nicely done Vanity Fair article

  1. Like this terrifying freakazoid, I too am a “Mastermind” on the Myers-Briggs.
    I promise to use my dungeon for good, except that I can’t think of any benign purposes for a dungeon and yet I still want one.


      1. Re: benign purposes
        Those guys advertise trebuchets but not dungeons. I call ripoff, though it would be pretty cool to have your own trebuchet.


      2. Re: benign purposes
        Shit, I’d settle for a decent coffee shop! Do you mind the south county commute for a new and improved dungeon with potential patio access?


  2. I thought it was Samueli at first. I feared that half of the UCs were going to have to Raze their EE depts for fear of cold fusion laser blasters being built.
    Thanks for posting this article.


  3. I hope this guy gets into even MORE local / national drama, if nothing but for the fact that his story might make a great movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis, because this guy is his doppelganger.
